Hi Andy,

thanks a lot for commenting and for the Heilnein :) I definitely agree with you in a way, that from the fundamental knowledge point of view, you have to be a jack-of-all-trades. It simply makes you wiser and aware of totally different things in the profession and in life. I tried to make the tests, involving as more as possible fundamental disciplines and being industry or tool agnostic (there are almost no questions on things like NLP or Tensorflow). On the other hand, people really have different talents and it’s really difficult to ask someone who has a talent for visualizing and telling stories to be a good engineer, the same as asking a researcher to be great in pure software engineering. Of course, in real life sometimes you have to do different things, but as I see (probably wrong!), there exists some division in the roles I have tried to describe them in this blog…
